George Wuerthner updates his arguments about need to have cows to prevent sprawl-
A long time ago I tended to be the kind of conservationist who grudgingly thought we had to give all kinds of perks to livestock interests so they wouldn’t sell and subdivide the West. I was becoming disillusioned with the results of helping the livestock elite, and Wuerthner’s thinking helped me see appeasing them was not necessary, but counterproductive.
Now he has updated his landmark essay: “Cows or Condos, a false choice.”
Cows or Condos: A False Choice Between Public Lands Ranching and Sprawl. By George Wuerthner in New West.
